Over a hundred years old, this is a strongly recorded xylophone solo. I lost the original record - this was dubbed onto a tape in 1977 and carried around for near 30 years until I got it onto the computer. The flip side is "Santiago", a waltz by the Estudiantina Trio. If anyone has this, please upload it. Encyclopedic Discography: http://victor.library.ucsb.edu/index.php/object/detail/10581/Victor_16562 ( 1 reviews ) Topics: William H.

An early Edison cylinder (#535) from approx. 1897-98. 'The Forge in the Forest' was composed by Theodor Michaelis under the German name 'Die Schmiede im Walde'. The recording set up for this one was definitely not the best as the triangle drowns out a lot of the other instruments.

The Gunsmoke radio version ran from 1952 to 1961 and, according to John Dunning, amongst old-time radio fans, "Gunsmoke is routinely placed among the best shows of any kind and any time." The television version ran from 1955 to 1975 and is the longest running prime time drama and the second-longest running prime time fictional program in U.S. television history, its record surpassed only by the Disney anthology television series and Hallmark Hall of Fame.

Jack Gibbons plays his famous note-for-note recreation of Gershwin's legendary 4-handed 1925 piano-roll recording of the Rhapsody in Blue. The video was recorded live in concert in 2007. "Jack Gibbons is able to reproduce Gershwin as Gershwin performed, in a remarkable recreation of Gershwin's unique keyboard style. Hearing Jack Gibbons perform is like being at a Gershwin party, in a sense like being with Gershwin" (Edward Jablonski, biographer of George Gershwin, New York 1998) For...

The Gunsmoke radio shows are said by many to be the BEST old time radio there ever was. I am in this camp. Chances are good that you will be as well. Old time radio shows including Gunsmoke are in the public domain. If you are old enough to know Gunsmoke on TV, which ran side by side with the radio version for awhile, you'll find that the radio version eclipses the TV version. Hopefully other fans of Gunsmoke will complete the collection I have begun! ( 5 reviews ) Topics: OTR, western, old time radio, gunsmoke
ADVENTURES OF PHILIP MARLOWE Elements of mystery have always been represented in literature, but the detective story didn't arrive on the scene until the mid 1800's. Edgar Allan Poe's The Murders in the Rue Morgue, published in 1841, was the first. The Murder's main character, C. Auguste Dupin, was a brilliant detective who relied on superior deductive powers to solve the crime. He and his unnamed narrator companion solved this and two other mysteries. Later in the 19th century Sir Arthur... ( 11 reviews ) Topics: OTRR, Old Time Radio Researchers Group, Old Time Radio, OTRR Single Episodes, Adventures of Philip...
